MATCH REACTION | Brown pleased with quality of performance v Bantams

18 October 2016

Blues Boss on 1-1 draw v Bradford City

Phil Brown believes that not many teams will ask as many questions of Bradford City on their home patch as his Blues side did in a 1-1 draw at the Northern Commercials Stadium at Valley Parade.

Anthony Wordsworth’s second half header cancelled out Marc McNulty’s first half opener to give Southend a share of the spoils in West Yorkshire on Tuesday night.

And Brown, speaking after the game, believes his players will take much confidence from the result going into the weekend’s trip to MK Dons.

“Bradford will face teams this season who will probably come here and lock the back door and park the bus, but they didn’t meet one of them tonight.”

“They met a team that went toe-to-toe with them in every quarter and every department in work-rate, discipline and quality and I think we more than matched them.

“So we’ll be looking to re-enact that performance again against MK Dons on Saturday and I’m going into the game with the players buoyed and confident that we can get something from that game.

“We’ve got a strong squad of 20/21 players and every one of them will play a big, big part.

“We’ve got some big games coming up and there will be questions asked, but hopefully we will have enough answers to win those games of football.”
